Ingredients

For the beef
  • 4 ounces beef sirloin, fat trimmed off, sliced into thin strips
  • knob of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • pinch of sea salt flakes
  • pinch of ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
For the fried rice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed and finely chopped
  • 7 ounces spinach leaves
  • 1 1⁄2 cups cooked basmati rice (3⁄4 cup uncooked)
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • pinch of ground white pepper

Instructions

Combine all the ingredients for the beef in a bowl, then set aside. 

Heat a wok over high heat until smoking and add 1 tablespoon canola oil.

Add the garlic and stir-fry for a few seconds to release its aroma, then add the spinach and cook for 5 seconds.

Add in the cooked rice and toss with the spinach for 30 seconds. 

Push the rice to one side, then heat up the center of the wok and pour in the remaining canola oil.

Add the beef and let it brown and sear for 10 seconds, then flip it over. Stir-fry until all the beef has coated the rice, then season with the light soy sauce, oyster sauce, and toasted sesame oil. Work quickly so the spinach doesn’t become mush. 

Sprinkle with some ground white pepper and serve immediately.
